WOW......I was going to say, some of you guys could have bought an SS, but I guess to get an SS the way you want it, that is still another $7-10K.

There is no winning with car addictions!

I will have to check your car out some day soon......maybe next Saturday at Cars and Coffee, if we both attend!

There is so much you can do today, inexpensively, that brings up the horsepower. But it is all relative. I bought my Camaro strictly to have a comfortable street car with some kahonaise. If I wanted to race, I can always make it a beast, that is easy. But you loose engine longevity when you drip every drop of power possible out of it. It is all a matter of what you are in to. But I love seeing what other people do with their rides. Look forward to seeing yours someday soon.

I just pray I do not catch the disease from you........you may start costing me cash. Especially if we ever get side to side at the track and you win......that would be bad!

I would drive a customized-the-way-you-want-it V6 any day over a stock SS. I also couldn't even consider an SS for less than 10 grand more than what I paid for my 1LT. I have less than a couple grand wrapped up in mine right now...always more to come!

and to think I thought I was the only one who had all my numbers. I started a spreadsheet on everything I bought since I got my Camaro. Baylor you still have me beat. All though I can see making up some quick ground once I buy my wheels and tires. You have a few mods that I don't see on my future list too.

I think I am at around $5300. I have only added on the Clear Bra, Window Tint, Barton Shifter, Full exhaust, CAI, Trifecta Tune and Detroit Speed Suspension.

I am only totally up mods I added that weren't necessary

Tires and that SS bumper totaled up to $900. I had to get a new bumper because I killed something in the middle of the night on I85 in VA in the spring. By the time I got tires I had about 23K miles on the Pirellis (Yikes)

Spent about ten thousand on my ride with the car audio system costing the most of any mod by a fair margin.
